CDA: Three letters. A thousand possibilities.
Over the past 20 years, CDA has established itself in numerous industries as a reliable manufacturer of optical storage media. The approximately 500 employees at its German and North American locations do not wait for tomorrow’s trends, but already today serve future-oriented markets across the world with innovative ideas and solutions.
In addition to copying data to CDs, DVDs and Blu-ray discs, with its business area ImPressing Solutions CDA offers exceptional features and patented technologies. One example is the integration of RFID chips, which offers revolutionary copy-protection potential for CDs and DVDs and makes the worldwide identification of storage media possible. Holographic effects, brilliant look, scratch protection, braille or black-label vinyl discs are additional distinctive features of CDA’s portfolio. As an AACS licensee and member of the Blu-ray Association, CDA is one of the few duplication companies able to perform all process steps for the integration of copy-protection mechanisms in-house.
CDA has always been a pioneer and trendsetter. That is reflected in the company’s slogan “We inspire and manufacture value” as well as in its corporate strategy. Firstly, since 2005 it has served the worldwide automobile industry with SD cards, micro-SD cards and SSDs in the area of flash media solutions for global navigation. Secondly, through its extensive process knowledge and years of technical experience in dealing with polymer, CDA has expanded its micro-optic and microfluidic product portfolio. With the business area µFunctional Solutions, the company offers the development and mass production of micro-optics and microfluidic components, as well as printed electronics innovations. By bundling core competencies with new technologies, CDA has evolved from a press plant to an international technology company. Today, it is an innovation driver and leading manufacturer in future-oriented branches such as medicine, biotechnology, gesture control and modern entertainment electronics. Its well-known clients include Microsoft, Google, Audi, Bosch, Siemens or the VW Group.
All manufacturing processes are performed in-house and regularly put to the test by certified quality management systems. In addition to flawless products and production processes, absolute protection in terms of the customer’s intellectual property is guaranteed. CDA’s customers are not only up-to-date, but always one step ahead, thanks to the company’s immense know-how and commitment as a member of the Media Tech Association as well as the purchasing cooperative Colonial Purchasing.
